Since I posted a question already I thought I should introduce myself.

I'm Tishauna, due in December with our first child. I recently decided on trying for a natural childbirth after a few months of not being able to make up my mind. We're birthing at a hospital and I'm searching for a doula to help out with all the things I'd like to achieve with this birth.

The reading list here really helps a lot - I just picked up "The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth" and "Guide to Childbirth" last night.

Hope to get to know you guys more as I learn!

Welcome TiShauna and congrats on your little boy! This is a great place to get support and inspiration. What made you interested in NCB? Are you under the care of an OB or midwife? If an OB, is (s)he favorable to NCB?

Looking forward to getting to know you.

I became interested in NCB before I got pregnant, my mom had 2 kids naturally but I wasn't convinced that I could do it myself. I didn't know if it was something I even wanted to do until I started to put together my birth plan - I realized a lot of the interventions I want to avoid are linked to epidurals and overzealous medical procedures. I've researched it a lot more and finally decided it's the right choice for me.

I'm with an OB right now, it's the only option our insurance offers. When I took the hospital tour they were talking about having squatting bars and birthing balls available, getting your husband to bring his trunks to support you in the shower, aromatherapy - it seems that they are open to a lot of things I'd like to do. I plan on talking to my doctor at tomorrow's appointment about more of the specifics. She was open-minded when I told her we'll be delaying vaccination, so I hope she's open to this as well.

Great to see another December mommy over here! Sounds like you have a nice hospital for your labor. I'm sure you can NCB! Just get a good doula and have your mind set to it.

Hi, welcome! I'm Cheryl, one of the co-hosts here. I had my daughter in a hospital totally intervention and med free. I did have a doula, she was a lifesaver. My nurse was crappy, so I focused on my doula. I'm glad to hear you are looking for one.

Welcome! This is a great board, with so many supportive women. It's wonderful to be surrounded by these strong women who have had successful NCB. My name is Nikki, and I'm shooting for NCB around Jan 16. It's my first as well!
